Top 5 Classical Composers - ambernector - 30-09-2009

We have a top 5 thread for all other genres. So why not Classical.

Mine would be, in no particular order;
  • Vivaldi
  • Strauss
  • Debussy
  • Saint Seans
  • Ravel
Anyone else care to join?

After I listed my top 5 "Classical" composers, I realized that only one of them was actually Classical.

Here's the breakdown:

Rachmaninoff Russian late Romanticism
Chopin Romantic
Debussy Modern, Impressionist
Beethoven On the cusp of Romantic leading away from Classical
Mozart Classical

Although the term Classical is used so broadly anyway, I don't know if I'm being too geeky about this...

AE :blah:

Does this mean we have to have more genres?
